This custom made desk has 3" x 3" welded steel legs connected by 1/4" steel stretchers. All metal components have been powder coated matte black for long-term durability. The two tops that make up the L-shape are from truly authentic 1-1/2" reclaimed barnwood. The wood for the desktops was salvaged from 2x8 oak floor joist in a barn in Tennessee. The material had 4.7 lbs of iron and embedded nails in it that had to be removed prior to milling in to usable furniture lumber. Much care was taken to preserve the aged characteristic of the material; it's filled with many saw marks from the early American sawmills, and also loaded with nail holes and worm holes. The most severe holes or indentations were filled with black epoxy. The desktop then received three coats of a commercial-grade finish. The final product turned out amazing.
Size: Section A= 24" x 78" x 1-1/2", Section B=30" x 72" x 1-1/2"

Beautiful and amazing desk.
Gary was also very cooperative on electric / USB customization we planned together, with a "no problem" attitude - which I appreciated.
Gary, like me is a stubborn German, and gratefully he is mostly stubborn about quality and craftsmanship - which I appreciate above all else.
For this same reason, Gary and I locked horns over communications and delivery, pretty much misunderstanding one another every time. To the detriment of our relationship - but not to the project.
In the final analysis, take Gary at face value - he really cares about the quality of what he does - and it shows in the craftsmanship. While circumstance and personalities may bring about tensions, and misunderstandings, Gary has an honest and earnest heart, he will look out for you, and you will love his furniture.
God bless you, Gary and the team at Deer Valley
